damn. what'd u think I should get in your opinion? I posted how much I can get both for at Best Buy and Target. Also I don't really listen to music on my phone except for pandora if my ipod is dead. Best thing I can do is just go try on both at best buy then make my decision I guess.

Not sure honestly. I don't use headphones any longer. I prefer IEMs.

Yeah I know what you mean. It's the general consensus of audio fidelity. Doesn't apply to me though because the sound coming from my headphones is actually perfect for me, yet at the same time I feel this awful guilt by owning such expensive gear that I don't think I should own. My case is rare for typical audiophiles because most of them have absolutlely no regard for money, but I just can't seem to enjoy music as much as I used to. ****ed up part about all this is that I'm having trouble settling with cheaper cans because now that my ears are somewhat trained, I'm more prone to detect flaws in the inferior quality. I feel like I'm caught in a crossfire.

I put up my HD600 for sale on craigslist but I pulled them right back because I can't seem to let these go. I gotta admit they're one awesome pair of headphones.

They already sound better than my Sennheiser 280s, and they aren't even burnt in yet. Stronger, yet cleaner bass, very clear highs, and the mids don't get lost in the shuffle. They're also more comfortable than my 280s, being lighter, having a better fit, and also having a less annoying cord. Also the Sennys tend to want to slide off of my head at times(especially when I grow my hair out), so far these are staying in place just fine. Looking forward to what they sound like in two weeks or so. Haven't tried them with games or anything yet.

Thinking of getting these headphones, just trying to find a decent price. Getting headphones in Canada kinda sucks.

They also have exclusive modded versions of the ATH-M50. I personally have their ATH-M50 with detachable coiled cable. Love everything about it.

Got these for $20 at FYE over the weekend. Pretty good but the wires are too damn long.

Ended up getting a pair of Sennheiser hd 439s, cost 50 bucks on boxing day. I'll probably upgrade later but they're pretty good for the time being.

I got some Koss in ear pair for just around/under $50.

They're really nice, comparable to the JVC XX or whatever those are called (also in ear).

I feel as though I've lost a bit of sound in the right ear, but it's nothing that I notice that much. Doesn't leak much sound at all.

I'm thinking about grabbing an over the ear pair just because. I'm looking at a lot right now. The ath-ad700 get really good reviews and are only 100 on amazon at this very moment. However I'd never be able to use them in public and that's a bit of a downside.

Sennheiser HD 219


Just picked these up for $11 on amazon. If you have prime, well worth the buy They are refurbs... but I'm hoping they replaced everything

They are great in my opinion. Kinda like the BOSE ones that stay on the ear? They block most of the noise, which is a good thing living in the city. I can cross the street and still not be oblivious to everything around me. The sound is very good, but I am not a hardcore audiophile. If anything, the cord worries me because it's very skinny. I've already got it stuck on my shirt a couple of times. So I might pick up another few. $11 is cheap. If anyones wondering http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listi...on=refurbished

Can anyone recommend some great, yet inexpensive headphones? My in-ear beats (rip offs) just broke after working great for almost two years.

Thanks for the bump, reminded me to get new earphones and screen protector. Always forget to buy some

Planning on getting one of these.



And also, any recommendations for cheap iPhone 4s screen protectors? I got a really cheap one but it's awful.
